will geodon (ziprasidone) and risperdal cause joint weakness when bearing weight?

Not usually: Geodon (ziprasidone) and Risperdal are medications commonly prescribed and are usually well tolerated. With that being said, they can cause adverse reactions such as dry mouth, dizziness and weakness. Joint weakness specifically is not a commonly known reaction of these medications. Speak with your doctor about these concerns.
